I want to climb
out of the window
and sit on the roof.



my man,
Gaston Bachelard
always stressed that
the attic, is the ultimate
space for enlightenment;
a clear mind.

I love these photo's... I could easily live in one of those cute houses!

Reykjavik was the first trip that I took with my husband shortly after we got together some 7 years ago... we LOVED it.

Thanks for sharing this!

I looked at the pictures of Iceland you recommended. After seeing all that, you wish to visit sooner than later. I especially want to see an aurora at least once in my life.
